'Pretty Galah with Bat, Chrysanthemum and Lotus Vase' From the Loved Objects Collection.
We are visited daily by galah couples or large family groups and they always make me smile. They fly into the seed station like Star Wars fighter pilots ducking and weaving, hanging upside down and seeming to enjoy seeing the world this way and then strutting their stuff with their crests raised and calling out to each other. Here, a real beauty has landed on unusual antique blue, white and pink jar. This jar dates from the period of 1736—1795.
